(Huang Lee burns it up during a flamethrower Rampage.)

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is now available for iPhone and iPod touch and currently burning up the top 10 best-selling apps chart.  As many of you are getting into all of Chinatown Wars’ handheld mayhem, you’re no doubt learning the streets of Liberty City can be unkind to strangers that aren’t carrying the right protection.  Weapons can be purchased at the AmmuNation online store available within your PDA, but if you lack funds, the cheats below should help you get your hands on a nice arsenal of firepower.  

Cheats are entered on your Mission Replay Board which can be accessed by visiting any Safe House (you can find the Board on the far right side of the Safe House).  The Mission Replay Board has a jumbled set of magnetized letters that can be used to arrange all kinds of words - spell out the letters below to input the following cheats:


Weapon Cheats

  • Weapon cheat 1 - LOADOA
    • Grants: grenade, nightstick, pistol, minigun, assault, micro smg, stubby shotgun
  • Weapon cheat 2 - LOADOB
    • Grants: molotov, teaser, dual pistols, flamethrower, carbine, smg, dual-barrel
  • Weapon cheat 3 - LOADOC
    • Grants: mine, chainsaw, revolver, flamethrower, carbine, smg, dual-barrel
  • Weapon cheat 4 - LOADOD
    • Grants: flashbang, bat, pistol, rpg, carbine, micro smg, stubby shotgun


You will know you have entered a cheat successfully when all of the magnetized letters go back to their original position on the board and a piece of text appears at the bottom of the screen with the load-out name you selected.  Once you exit your safe house, you can switch weapons by pressing the pause button in the upper right hand corner (a screen with all of your current weapons will pop up).  

Be on the lookout as we reveal more cheats for Chinatown Wars iPhone/iPod touch in the very near future.

          @Jortan: now yes, thx a lot for the hint. btw even knowing what i've to search for it was NOT easy to find (impossible otherwise)

          so i post here what their answer is:
          > "We'd love to be able to make it available to everyone worldwide. We're currently working around regional laws and hope to have it available to all countries soon."

          wow... everbody else on this planet is able to have it ready almost the same day, the is no f*in speciality in switzerland, our laws are even much less strict than in germany (for example about violence)! that's just an EPIC EPIC EPIC FAIL!

          oh btw beaterator is STILL not available in switzerland... and this has been 1.5 *************MONTHS*********** now! just unbelievable!!!!!

          hell i want to PAY that stuff, i don't even care about the price!!!! do you force me to get it from another "source"?????????????? read

                  We're getting ahead of you over on the TouchArcade forums :) I'm not sure how useful it is having to go all the way to a safe house to enter cheats though...
